My name is Csaba Tamas. I'm a travel guide and I work for Yellow Zebra, and we're having this tour around the city of Budapest today in Hungary. On the west side, we find the second largest synagogue in the whole world. It was built in 1875 and, in Moorish architecture style. The architect spent a year in Spain and that's where he got the influence from. You can walk here from the Dag Square (5 minutes walking distance) and explore the Jewish district. Not just this synagogue but small, hidden treats at some other synagogues as well. And that used to be the place that the Jewish community was living until the Second World War.
